Tilt and slide door repair in Rotherham

At uPVC Door Repairs Rotherham, we are the only local company that specialises in repairing tilt-and-slide doors.

Tilt-and-slide doors were a very popular choice 20-30 years ago, and many of these types of doors have reached a point where they need a repair or are showing signs of “wear and tear.”

Typical problems with tilt & slide patio doors

If you find the door handle spinning around or will not budge, there is every chance the drive gear has failed.

Drive gear fail

When you operate the handle, this, in turn, operates the drive gear, which moves the locking points running around the edge of the door and keeps the door secure when closed and locked. Over time, the door can “drop” and cause friction on these locking points, putting strain on the drive gear and causing it to fail.

Fortunately, we have access to most replacement parts and can repair your tilt-and-slide door for considerably less than the cost of a new door.

Worn out gliders

Another common problem with tilt-and-slide doors is that the top “gliders” wear and crack due to constant use. The first thing you know about this is when the door “topples” out on top of you. The door can still be closed and will be safe while locked. Call us immediately, and we will pop out and replace the gliders, making your door okay again. We will also check the door and provide service free of charge. In the meantime, a note on the door- do not use, is handy.

Tracking  problems

The sliding door runs on a “bottom bogey” set of wheels. Though it is rare for these to cause problems, we can repair or replace them if they do. There is a spring that can fail, or the connecting rod that helps guide the door can come out.

All our work is guaranteed for two years, but we expect all our repairs to last longer than that.

You may have lost the key or had the key snap in the handle. We carry new handles in white, brass, and silver. There are two different lengths as well, but we have both. Don’t worry if the door is locked; we will be able to open the lock.
